Eugene, Oregon's Gainsborough, a Cozy 55+ Manufactured Home Community, Has Attractive Homes, Lush Landscaping and Friendly Neighbors
Eugene sits along the Willamette River 110 miles south of Portland in west central Oregon. It is nicknamed "The Emerald City" and is the site of Gainsborough, an attractive, cozy 55+ manufactured home community. Built in 1994 and gated, the development has just 73 homes on 23 acres and boasts the quiet ambiance of a suburban neighborhood.
Each home has a slightly pitched roof, a nicely landscapded yard, a small porch and an attached 2-car or 3-car garage. Some dwellings have brick exterior accents. A solid concrete foundation, a private, fenced backyard, an underground sprinkler system and an energy efficient design are standard. To the untrained eye, these homes look site-built. The monthly fee ranges from the high-$400s to the mid-$500s and covers land and property taxes, cable TV, amenities, common area maintenance and more. Additional costs include property taxes, homeowner's insurance and utilities. Prices begin in the mid-$100,000s, but please verify this with the community or a Realtor as prices are bound to change.
The grounds are thick with tall trees and bushes. A creek winds its way through the community and feeds into a pond stocked with rainbow trout. Walkways and waterfalls create a soothing outdoor environment, and ducks, geese and other wildlife often come to visit. Residents enjoy an 8,000 sq. ft. clubhouse with a craft room, a dance hall and a fitness center. There are coffee get togethers, potlucks, dessert parties, garden parties, BBQs and planned outings.
Eugene is home to the University of Oregon and is known as a "Great City of the Arts and Outdoors." Fairs and markets are plentiful, and coffeehouses, pubs, microbreweries and eclectic shops dot the city. Small organic food stores are common in almost every neighborhood. Several vineyards and wineries within a short drive of town limits. The University has a continuing education program, and its Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI-OU) is targeted to the mature Eugene demographic.
PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center is the primary health care facility and has been named one of the best hospitals in Oregon. It has also won twelve consecutive consumer choice awards. Its accreditation comes from DNV Healthcare, a relatively new accreditation organization.

Temperatures are moderate with summer temperatures in the high 70s and mid 80s, and winter temperatures in the 30s and 40s. On average, the area receives 45 inches of rain and 5 inches of snow per year.
